obama, say raise those taxes on the rich but keep them low for everyone else. that's the deadlock, an here's that cliff. if lawmakers don't act the consequences will be felt by just about all of us, taxes for 90% of americans would rise next year. according to the non-partisan tax policy center, your income tax bill would rise $3,500 and if you make 50 grand a year the taxes will raise 2 grand and the infamous 1%, the taxes on them would rise an average of $25,000. that's if we go off the fiscal cliff and the thing we're trying to avoid. say we avoid the fiscal cliff, some americans will pay higher taxes. will crain a cnn contributor, licking his wounds since election day and jean, republicans are now on board by raising revenue by cutting tax breaks, but they are not on board with raising tax rates. >> no, they are not. >> some of them have pledged they will never, ever do that. how do we reconcile, that that's the challenge. >> you know, president obama came out this week and said compromise is hard, but we've got to do and do it together. he is still sticking the i want to rais
